Welcome to the Brooklyn Townhouse Roundup, where we—you guessed it—take a look at the most notable Brooklyn townhouses on the market. Got tips? Send 'em here.
First up on the roundup is this 25'-wide, Greek Revival townhouse in Brooklyn Heights. Built in 1845 and renovated in 2008, it has a wall of windows on the garden floor, a gilded pier mirror, pocket doors, a wood burning fireplace and custom built-ins, plus a deep, "professionally designed" garden. There's also a media room, gym, two skylights, a full bath, and a wet bar on the top floor. It's asking an awfully ambitious $7.3 million, but is it worth it?
Up next is this huge, 4,100-square-foot townhouse in Fort Greene. The place was built in 1864, and while it definitely needs a lot of work, the historic details are pretty impressive. There are 13-foot ceilings, ornate plaster moldings and medallions, original woodwork and flooring, pocket doors, and mantels, plus what look like some very nice chandeliers. It's asking $2.595 million.
Finally, in Clinton Hill, this four-story brownstone is asking $2.75 million. Original details include decorative fireplaces with marble mantels and intricate tile work, arched doors, and moldings. It also has built-in bookcases, walk-in closets, hardwood flooring throughout, and restored parquet floors in the dining room. The garden allegedly has a fountain.
